Let us Give Hope to the Remaining Holocaust Survivors
The Holocaust – a tragedy that will never be forgotten. A tragedy that brought death upon 6,000,000 Jewish men, women, and children. A tragedy that wiped out over 5,000 Jewish communities. But a tragedy that eventually led to the creation of the modern state of Israel. How is this even possible, that something so profound and beautiful could come out of one of the worst manifestations of human nature?
Israel’s rebirth was a direct result of the holocaust. It was the brutality and the common responsibility that made so much sense to vote for a Jewish state, a state that would take in all of those who survived the tragedies that had wiped out their families, homes, and entire communities. The modern state of Israel serves as THE God-ordained homeland for all Jewish people. It is also the place where the Holocaust survivors came to start their lives over, as a promise that the genocide would NEVER AGAIN happen, because they would be protected by the Jewish state.
Today, the Christian visitor needs to understand the responsibility Christians have as partners of the Jewish covenant with God. Responsibility to act to protect the chosen people, to stand up to the world that seeks to destroy this God – chosen nation. It is the Christian responsibility to pray for the State of Israel, as Isaiah 57:17 states, “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.” Israel is the heritage of the Jewish people, and also as a refuge to those who have survived the holocaust and moved to Israel in order to start over and feel protected.
How can the everyday Christian even relate to what happened to the Jewish people in Israel? For instance, have we not noticed the amount of religious persecution that is going on in the Middle East today? The region where Christianity started is under attack by Muslims slaughtering Christians for their religious beliefs, and what have any of the governments in that region, not to mention our own government, done in order to help protect these innocent people? In a way, Christians too are being persecuted for their beliefs, and are being “wiped out” in areas such as Iraq, Syria, Egypt, and parts of Africa.
Holocaust as a historic event is over, the only connection we have is the modern state of Israel. Especially, those that lived through the horrors and are a living reminder of what humanity can be like. But also a reminder of God’s faithfulness. How can we allow these people to fade from our memory living in poverty and loneliness? LoveIsrael.com invites you to take a historic opportunity to be a part of what God is doing – restoring a nation from the ashes of holocaust to a vibrant modern country that values life and peace above all else. A place where those last remaining holocaust survivors can live a free, peaceful, and a comfortable life.
By partnering with us to stand with Holocaust Survivors, you are celebrating God’s everlasting covenant and a victory of light over darkness.
